6 Fun FactsAbout Wedding Planner Ella Hartig
In my opinion, you can never have too many candles! Whether that be to style your wedding table, or to just relax with at home, I love the cosy warming vibe they provide. If they are also scented then even better! Lily of the valley, seychelles or jasmine are some of my personal favourite scents.
My husband and I love skiing, there is nothing quite like the feeling of it and nothing beats an alfresco lunch in the snow on a blue sky ski day! We love the mountains so much that we even chose to get married there with 50 of our closest friends and family in 2020!
Every song sounds good on the steel drums, it's just a sound that makes me instantly chilled and happy. I've been fortunate to spend a lot of time in the Caribbean, even living there a couple of years so this music instantly transports me to happy times with the sand between my toes and a pinacolada in hand!
I aboslutely love exploring new venues and thinking of unique spaces to use for clients events. My favourite part of the planning journey is the venue search, it sets the scene for the whole event so finding the perfect spot is key!
I love to eat out but equally I love to cook too. I am flexitarian and try to avoid too much meat or fish for sustainability reasons. I love all cuisines from Thai to Korean, to Columbian to Austrian. My favourite food is Italian. I'd happily welcome the challenge to eat it daily!
In my free time you'll either find me outside exploring a new walk, or recovering from said adventure by bingewatching the latest Netflix hit on the sofa! I love to spend my Sundays exploring new walking routes in the countryside.
